Academic Advisement

Take the guesswork out of choosing classes.
Meet with an academic advisor each semester.

Academic advisors are here to help you:

  • Apply for graduation;
  • Check how far along in your degree you are;
  • Guide you through the transfer process;
  • Set up an education plan;
  • Stay on track to meet your goals;
  • Select classes to meet degree and transfer requirements;
  • Understand the requirements for your chosen degree.

From the left hand column choose the type of student you are to get more information about meeting with an advisor. In Advising vs. Counseling you can learn the different resources you can receive from an advisor or a counselor. 

---Please note if you encountered any issues or concerns, please contact for a follow up and/or complete the complaint form.
